Black and Red [Replacement Collars Available] (https://www.chewy.com/e-collar-technologies-biothane-buckle/dp/166812) in two widths.
I can't say enough good things about this collar. While it is on the pricier side, it is so worth it to be able to control my big dog. I work with a professional dog training who recommended this collar to me and with his help it has made my unruly 5 year old German Shepherd into a happy, exercised, and most importantly, safe dog. For long haired breeds, I strongly suggest ordering the long prong attachment. And I can not recommend enough to work with a trainer while using these products! They are 10 times more effective when used properly and so, SO much safer. Work with a professional!
Really poor quality. I’m on my second collar (replaced by company), and it stopped working today. The first collar stopped charging in the first month of purchase. The replacement stopped receiving signal from the transmitter. I’ve done all of the suggestions in the owners manual. Still not working. I realize they replace the equipment while still under warranty, but having to keep replacing the equipment is very frustrating. I would rather buy from a company that supplies high quality products.
This is my second e-collar. While it is much more money than the previous, the quality is obvious. I have also purchased the replacement collar that snaps close. I like to take it off when Abby is in the house. You can feel the quality. Intelligent design, such as no on or off button on the collar. You swipe the transmitter across the collar and it turns on or off. The is also the ability to have a blinking or steady light on the collar. Nice for those evening runs. A lot of accessories which will allow you to get the configurantion that works best for you. Even the rubber that covers the charging ports was designed to last.
I bought a few of these directly from educators website for my own working dog and 2 friends pet dogs. Delay between you pressing the button and collar activating is basically non-existent, it’s a great product. As any training collar, it must be used under guidance of professional trainer (for online material I highly recommend Tyler Muto’s course on “consider the dog”). I’ve ran into an issue with one of the remotes needing to be replaced due to crack in plastic core and it took just one phone call to Educator to resolve this. 10/10 for majority of dogs. Get a band with bungee/elastic to insure consistent contact.
For being so insanely expensive I would not expect that it would completely stop working at not even 1 month point. The battery dies almost immediately.
I understand that products like these can vary quite a bit and are not fit every dog. I bought these collars in March 2022 and have been working with my trainer to properly condition my dogs to the collars. I have two dogs so I thought this set up would be useful. Even at a 2 for stimulation, my 1.5 year old Australian shepherd puppy was not able to take to this collar well at all. We worked with our trainer once a week to make sure she was properly introduced to the collar but she became extremely cautious of the collar, fast. Over the past 6 months she has lost most of her drive to work and both our trainer and I think it’s due to these collars. Herding breeds are naturally a little more nervy, but this was extreme. I’ve been waiting to write my review to get an honest scope of the product. I stopped using these collars late October 2022, and have since noticed a huge change in behavior in my puppy. She’s opening back up, becoming more willing to work, and has gained back her biddability. My trainer is helping me rework her again to gain back her confidence and trust. I’m sure this tool is awesome for some dogs, but I’m having to rebuild my dogs confidence from the ground up because of the stimulation.
This device has 100 levels of static pulses as well as a plain vibrating option. Also a bright LED light that can be set to flash or stay on. After training our dog, now 18 months old, to know the basic commands, we still had issues with some hunting instinct or food-related disappearing acts. One or two electric stimuli in the beginning of her wearing the collar, when she started running after a turkeys or stayed behind eating coyote poop, made her realize she might get hurt, so now a simple buzz on the vibrate button reminds her. On our walks now, we have complete peace of mind and she gets lots of praise as we hardly even need to use the vibrate option either.
This collar is overrated the problem with it is the charging doesn't last very long and God forbid if it should go red meaning blinking on the collar it even States it in the directions that you cannot let it go low in the battery it doesn't last long it does work well however but the problem with it is very complicated to utilize I would not recommend this color it cost me way more money than it is on this chewy.com I paid $300 for it not worth it
We bought this when we got our dog about 1.5 years ago. It works really well when it works, as others say of course it can help with many training things. BUT we have had to replace the receiver 6 times now, about every 3 months. The company has replaced it every time, but they said they will stop at 2 years when the warranty is up (even though the receiver won't be close to that old). While this product is great in theory, in long term use with an outdoor-loving dog it just doesn't seem like it can hold up. The issues have been that the receiver just gets really mixed signals from the remote (making me worried it will be too strong) or stops charging. And yes, we tighten the screws as directed. I'd recommend looking elsewhere for an ecollar, which is a bummer because this one has a lot of great features.
It works good , took a hot minute to figure out how to get it turned on and get the settings right. Directions are a bit confusing.
